On July 20, another nine prisoners were executed in Gohardasht and Central prisons of Karaj, and on July 23, three prisoners were executed in the Central Prison of Rasht. Another prisoner was hanged in public in the city of Songhor (in the western province of Kermanshah).
With three executions taking place from July 11 to July 17, the number of those executed amounts to 52 in just 17 days.
Beset by numerous internal and international crises, the Iranian regime is incapable of responding to the most basic demands of the people of Iran. Fearing another upheaval by a restive populace, the regime resorts to wave of executions in cities across the country.
The Iranian Resistance calls on the nation and particularly the youths of Iran to voice their protest to the mullahs' pervasive repression.
